Jolly signs his tender
June 15, 2010, by Brian E Murphy
~The agent for Johnny Jolly, Brian Overstreet, has told the Journal Sentinel that his client did sign the Packers tender before last night’s NFL deadline.
Jolly will make $2.5 million this season, although it is not guaranteed and the Packers can release the big defensive lineman at any time without a financial hit to the Packers salary cap.
Jolly, as has been the case for quite some time, is in legal limbo with his case in Texas repeatedly being delayed.
Ted Thompson has taken measures to fill Jolly’s shoes with the drafting of Mike Neal and CJ Wilson, but the Packers would love to bring back Jolly’s pass-swatting ability.
